Top 5 Activities to Reduce Stress

OK, so fall is a time when everyone is excited to be back at school and see all of their friends, but once September hits, I know most people get stressed.

So, here is a list of my top 5 de-stressing activities.


1. Nap

I know not all of us are getting enough sleep these days. Napping can be a great way to take a break from your stressful classes. Also, it’s a nice way to catch up on some sleep that we all miss out on.


2. Face masks.

Face masks are a fun way to relax, with an added bonus of detoxing your skin. So, next time you’re feeling stressed, chill out by watching a show or movie with a face mask on.

3. Drink Tea or Coffee.

Drink some tea or coffee and just let yourself think. It’s honestly one of my favorite things to do in between classes. I will go to La Verna and order myself a tea, and sit in the comfy chairs and just think about my day so far.


4. Watch Movies

Watch a movie, rom-coms especially. Movies are a great way to wind down at the end of a stressful day, and if movies aren’t your thing, try reading a good book.

5. Wine Nights

Have a wine night with the girls. Nothing is better than relaxing, sipping wine and talking with your best friends for a night. All of the gossip and news of the day comes out, and it’s a nice way to spend time with your friends. I try to have at least one night a week where all of my friends get together and just talk. Wine or no wine, it’s a great time.
